Military Times: “West Point to Wall Street to … pro ice hockey? In Florida?”

“Matthew Caldwell’s career path hasn’t been particularly traditional, but the former Army officer has found a professional home with the NHL’s Florida Panthers, where he was named president and chief executive officer in April. And he’s not the only U.S. Military Academy grad on the club’s organizational chart. Owner Vincent Viola, USMA Class of 1977, bought the team in 2013, a year before his first appearance on Forbes magazine’s list of the world’s 400 wealthiest people.”

“The Army influence isn’t far from the surface — the Panthers will play a preseason game at West Point this year and visited the academy for a team-building exercise in 2015. New uniforms — unveiled June 2, the day before Caldwell spoke with Military Times — include a logo that resembles a unit patch and a special shoulder tab for the team captain.”
